Android the next RIA platform?

 It seems like Android would be a nice replacement for flash, silverlight,
flex, etc, for your desktop OS.

Among other things, it will probably save Google a lot of dough by
distributing a Android plugin for browsers, and then feed Youtube videos
through Android instead of Flash.

Any thoughts?

 Top idea!

I'm sold, now where do I sign  :-)

Suppose you could also have an android widget to put on your desktop  :-) 

I'm all for it!

 i would  agree with you if the android plugin could run all flex based
apps too.

Worse, to run Android apps, you need the VM first, which would mean

1. TextView "..." when using multiple lines

I have noticed that when a textview has a fixed width (let's say
fill_parent), if the text you set doesn't fit, android adds
automatically three dots "...". But this happens only when
How would I accomplish this with a textview that has singleLine=false
and maxLines=4 ?

2. Problem of MediaRecorder setVideoSize( )

Dear all,

I tried to capture video using MediaRecorder, everything works fine
and I got the 3gp file successfully.

However, the resolution is limited ( it seems like 320 x 480 ). I am
using Google nexus one and the built-in recorder could capture much
higher resolution video.

I tried to change the recorder resolution by calling setVideoSize( )
but it doesn't work. I tested it by different parameters, including
640,480,  480, 800, etc.

Did anyone have success in using setVideoSize ?
